Almost an elegy : new and later selected poems

Image of item

First edition.

"A moving and incandescent volume from a poet celebrated for her 'unfailing mastery of her medium' (New York Times Book Review). In poems of graceful lyricism and penetrating observation, award-winning poet Linda Pastan sheds new light on the complexities of ordinary life and the rising tide of mortality. Drawing from Pastan's five most recent volumes-including The Last Uncle (2002), Traveling Light (2011), and Insomnia (2015)-and with over thirty new poems, Almost an Elegy reflects on beauty, old age, and the probability of loss. Whether in a lush evocation of an impressionist painting or a wry and wistful ode to a car key, Pastan finds lucid meaning in the passage of time"--
